PR 16-46 Nye v. Rhode Island Department of Public Safety - No Violation

This Department concluded that the DPS did not violate the APRA because its search and retrieval relating to the Complainant's APRA request was reasonably calculated to discover all responsive documents. The APRA request sought arrest records and "any related documents, due to any body attachments," in a particular civil case. The DPS provided six (6) pages in an unredacted manner. The Complainant insisted that an "arrest record" existed, but the evidence was clear and undisputed that no "arrest record" existed.
